Few details are available about a shooting that occurred Friday afternoon in Mandan.

Mandan police received a report of a shooting about 4 p.m. Friday in the 1000 block of First Street Northwest, according to a news release from Mandan Deputy Police Chief Lori Flaten.

A victim was taken to a local hospital by private citizens, Flaten said.

On Saturday, a police dispatcher said Mandan police were not speaking to the media about the shooting. A message left for the Mandan police shift commander was not returned Saturday afternoon.

Police do not believe there’s a threat to public safety, the news release said. The incident remains under investigation.

Friday's shooting comes about a week after a Dec. 2 shooting incident in Mandan in the 800 block of Poplar Street that sent a 22-year-old man to the hospital injuries that were not life-threatening. Mandan police have released few details about that case, describing it as “complex.”
